OK, thanks for the clarification. I'll check with my Sony contact tomorrow (today?) to see whether the Bravias will have Cable Card slots.
Also, I've added pics of the remotes and the 40-inch XBR2 in red so you can see what it looks like with one of the custom bezels.
As for the 32 incher in the XBR2 line, I just dug through my raw pics and didn't see any. Sorry - guess I was distracted by the 1080p sets.
But here's what the press release stated:
"Rounding out the XBR2 line is the 32-inch KDL-V32XBR2 model featuring a 1366 x 768 screen resolution. It is equipped with Sony's BRAVIA Engine and Live Color Creation, which delivers a sharp and rich picture from standard definition sources as well as high-definition.
The set's narrow, two-tone black and silver bezel incorporates invisible bottom speakers with SRS TruSurroundXT and BBE Digital Enhancement technology.
Other features include a built-in ATSC tuner, single HDMI and PC inputs, as well as two high-definition component, two S-video and two composite inputs."
